Triss Merigold might be dubbed ‘Merigold the Fearless’ in The Witcher, although cosplayer Irene Meier has decided to show her gentler side with an unbelievable costume design.
The popularity of The Witcher spans over a number of different communities, including those who read Andrzej Sapkowski’s books, players of the hit video game and the Netflix exclusive TV series.
Therefore, it’s no surprise to see that characters from the franchise are also starting to appear in the world of cosplay, either, where fans often dress up as different figures and try to recreate them in the most creative ways possible.
Instagram model Irine Meier, who has a staggering 751,000 followers on the platform at the time of writing, has had a go of recreating the look of Triss Merigold and the results are impeccable.
For those who don’t know already, Merigold is one of the best healers in The Witcher, carrying with her a number of potions. However, what’s funny about the character is that she’s actually allergic to the potions she carries, meaning healing others is very much her thing.
The cosplayer has shared many different outfits to her profile, but there’s no doubt that her take on the legendary Temerian sorceress of the 13th century is one of the best, and an instant hit with fans – attracting over 55,000 likes.

Who watched The #Witcher TV show? ? Do you like it? I'm watching the 3rd episode right now. Can't say anything yet. I need to finish the season first haha This photo will make February warmer for those of you who ordered my new cosplay calendar ❤ You can still order it if you want. Check the link in bio ?

As the image above shows, Meier has done incredibly well to not only replicate the outfit, with a leaf green coat and gold trimming perfectly bringing the costume together but also the attention to detail for the photograph itself.
The setting very much fits the design of Merigold’s costume and wouldn’t look out of place if you saw this in a scene from the TV show or video game, that’s for sure.
Going one further, after noticing a slight difference about Triss’ character in the show, she completed another photoshoot showing what the “old school” version of Merigold the Fearless looks like.

Everyone is talking about this new brunette Triss in town from the #witchernetflix but I hope that you still like my "old school" redhead Triss ?? I just made a new photoshoot which will be released on Patreon at the end of this month. Check it out if you're curious ❤️ #Witcher #witcher3 #TrissMerigold
Meier also confirmed that this would be one of many photos to be included in her next Patreon drop. The first image, seen earlier, will be included in her cosplay calendar, which is available to buy now via her Instagram page.
Other designs that she’s completed in the past include Lara Croft, Ciri from The Witcher and more, but these ones might be up there with the very best.
